There’s been some noticeable crispness in the morning air lately, and now that the calendar has turned to August, we can no longer avoid the fact that fall is coming at us. While it’s too warm during the days for fall clothes, there are little ways that you can start your seasonal transition without producing any excess sweat; one of the best is with a new nail polish.
It wasn’t that long ago that holding any of the Kardashians up as style inspiration would have seemed a bit silly; for people who consistently wore expensive clothes, bags and shoes, the finished product just never felt all that chic. Times, they are a-changing, though, with Kim on a very controversial Vogue cover and Kendall Jenner walking a slew of prestigious runways from Marc Jacobs to Givenchy.
I walk through Grand Central Terminal twice a day, five days a week, and during that portion of my commute, I have a weird little opportunity to take stock of what an enormous swath of New York City is wearing. No matter what the weather, almost everyone’s wearing something dark, year-round.
As much as we’d like to give everyone a handbag for the holidays (and we really, really would), that’s just not an idea that’s within our budgets this year. Makeup, skincare and haircare, on the other hand, are a much more price-flexible gift idea; a $30 eyeshadow palette is delightful, but so is a $600 set of Tom Ford lipsticks.
I love a full skirt. They’re the only kind of skirts I own, mostly because of their ability nip in an imaginary waist and create the illusion of hips on my mostly straight frame. They’re dramatic, forgiving and timeless, and the black-and-white splatter of this Tibi Printed Silk Gazar Skirt had me at the proverbial “hello.” Me being me, though, I had to find a way to put a motorcycle jacket with it, and that’s exactly what I did in our latest installment of Outfit of the Week.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that fancy-schmancy nail art is a huge trend. The only problem with nail art, of course, is that it’s expensive and time-consuming to have done at a salon and you’re probably not coordinated enough to do it yourself.
Happy Friday! Welcome to the PurseForum Roundup of the last week in April, wherein we examine all the recent happenings on the PurseForum. This week, we continued to find signs of spring popping up all over the place. We spotted some incredibly beautiful cashmere in Hermes, located some stylish men, peeked into a box of nail polish and so much more!
Despite the fact that we often talk about the most expensive accessories on the face of the planet, everyone on the PurseBlog team finds great pleasure in well-priced pieces as well. That’s especially true around the holidays, when we want to spread as much cheer as we can to our friends and families.
There’s no official measure to test whether or not something has officially become a trend, but the unofficial standard that I use goes something like this: When three different pieces from three different brands repeat the same element, and those pieces are all available at roughly the same time, it’s a pretty good bet that more of the same is on the way from other brands and at other price points.
